Magoosh Introduces Free New GMAT Ebook
Here is an excerpt from the ebook:
If you do not have a clear path to the solution, but are still flailing about after a couple of minutes, burn the question and move on. At this point, your nerves are going to make finding a solution very difficult.
On the other hand, if you worked your way to a solution and after two minutes it is not the right one, go back and check your steps. Very often one little arithmetic mistake can prevent you from getting the correct answer.
Finally, if you have a certain weakness and a difficult problem exploits it, you can save time by randomly guessing on the question. The logic is you are unlikely to get the correct answer even after a couple of minutes. Burning a question or two shouldn’t hurt you too much, and because you save time (and overwrought nerves), it can indeed help you.
